I've been gone way too long

Sorry, but this weekend we had a bunch of church meetings and I've been driving into town a lot.
I also have been obsessed with rereading the Twilight series. I've been thinking that I might be a Twilight Junkie. Like you might be a Twilight Junkie if while listening to the radio you pick out references to Edward and Bella in almost every song. Or you just try to pick out a song that's their song... like Aerosmith's "I don't want to miss a thing". Or you give way too much thought to who could possibly play the part of Edward or Bella in a movie not to mention all the other characters. Like you might be a Twilight junkie if while making breakfast for your kids your hearts automatically starts to beat faster at the remembrance that Edward left Bella (not that you haven't already read that book three times and you already KNOW that!)
I know this is crazy and that these books are for YA's but they really do capture your attention and pull you in. I think I'll be respectable when I read Stephanie Meyer's new book HOST next May that's for adults. Sheesh.
FYI on the lyrics for those of you who've ready the books. Don't they fit well?
I Don't Want To Miss A Thing lyrics
I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
While you're far away and dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Well, every moment spent with you
Is a moment I treasure
I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream would never do
I'd still miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing
Lying close to you
Feeling your heart beating
And I'm wondering what you're dreaming
Wondering if it's me you're seeing
Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we're together
And I just wanna stay with you
In this moment forever, forever and ever
I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream would never do
I'd still miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing
I don't wanna miss one smile
I don't wanna miss one kiss
Well, I just wanna be with you
Right here with you, just like this
I just wanna hold you close
Feel your heart so close to mine
And just stay here in this moment
For all the rest of time
Don't wanna close my eyes
Don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream would never do
'Cause I'd still miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing
I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream would never do
I'd still miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing
Don't wanna close my eyes
Don't wanna fall asleep, yeah
I don't wanna miss a thing
I don't wanna miss a thing

:) We read Twilight for my online bookclub and had the best discussion of any of the books we have read so far. In my group people just tend to make there own post about the book and not react to anyone else's- kind of boring that way. But with twilight we got some discussion going! Love it. All of us loved it and read New Moon right away. Eclipse is our book for this month. :) Can't wait.
